I dance only for you, but the mirror looks on.

I dance only for you, but the mirror looks on.

Matching me turn for turn,

Dipping
   and swirling
      and undulating.

The rapt attention of a comfortable
Old friend
Bearing silent witness to a burst of passion.
But you are nowhere to be found.

I shake
   and shimmy
      and shudder.

I rock
       and reel


and wreck.


I dance alone.
The mirror looks on.
